Talk to EdWort. His is that exact model I think. I bet he can give you the cost of his conversion to 3 taps.

Yup those 6.4 cf ones can hold 3 (if 2 one one handle from what I hear) and a 5lb co2 bottle.

+1 on this is what I want for many reasons: Lack of space for a used fridge and quality looking so it fits into the place and the SWMBO will accept it. But its $700+200 for a 3 tower +100 for connections etc. + kegs thats over $1k and the reason i don't have one yet.

My breakdown of parts involved is as follows:

Fridge itself - $250 (it should be more then that since this is a 6.4 cf)
shipping - $100
brand new 5# co2 tank - $100
chrome dual tap tower - $120
2 Sankeys - $60
cleaning kit - $30
drip tray - $20

That brings it down to $680, so $110 for the professional labor that I will be avoiding is not bad imho. I will be ok with just 2 taps with 3rd keg conditioning. My birthday is coming up in the end of the month and my parents wanted to buy me something.

Default I JUST ordered my Kit

Like others have said, if you don't feel like doing the work, then go right ahead and just buy it and don't look back.

i personally live for DIY Beers stuff. So I am in the same boat as you, I live in a small townhome and don't have room for a chest freezer, I want it IN my house for easy access so I want it to look nice. So I am choosing to do a conversion of the Oster from Best Buy.

I am in the process of getting the parts I need, and I just ordered my Tower conversion kit from KegConnection.

For around $460 SHIPPED you can get the Conversion kit will ALL the stuff you need, PLUS 2 more kegs (4 Kegs in total) and WITH the upgraded Perlick faucets for that price.

Add the price of the Fridge ($209) you are right around $700, You still have to do the work to convert, but you now have 4 kegs and better forward sealing faucets?

-Craig

The Haier 6.4 cf can fit 3 cornies but I am totally fine with 2 on tap and 3rd one lagering. I will get rid of one of my coffee tables and put the fridge in my living room.

Its almost $600 + $100 for S/H + $100 for co2 tank makes Costco still cheaper and better deal
